Have you ever been driving down the street and saw a church on the corner and something was telling you to go inside? That still small voice is God showing you where He wants you. We've had another family join us. Stop by and see what we're all about!
To You, Who Is Jesus?
Some of you might say, "The son of God" or "the man who died on the cross". Yes, you're right. But He is so much more! All through the Old Testament books of the Bible, God required a sacrifice as an atonement for the people's evil deeds (Sin). Whether it was a ram, a bull, a sheep, or a dove, sacrifice was required to make man right in God's eyes. This all points to Jesus, God's Son. God sent Him to live among us to show us how to live and love each other. Yes, he performed miracles but that wasn't the purpose God had for Him. Jesus was the perfect, spotless lamb that was to be sacrificed bearing ALL of the sin of EVERY human being, past, present, and future.
When He died on that cross He took all of that sin to the grave and conquered death by raising on the third day from that grave. Our answer to the above question should be "He is my Lord and Savior" because he came and died to save us from ourselves.
When we accept God into our hearts and lives as our Lord and Savior we aren't just bound by a set of rules. We are entering into a relationship with the One who created us in His image and loves us so much he sacrificed His own Son. We don't have to go through life alone. God gave us free will to choose to follow Him and go through life with Him or follow man and go through life wandering aimlessly. That choice includes our destination after we leave this earth. To enter into eternity with God or separation from God. "Jesus said, 'I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6
How can God use you in this evil world?
In the last twelve months we have faced a time such has never happened before. Yes, we've had pandemics in the past, cultural unrest was prevalent in the 1960s, and high unemployment and a struggling economy happen every few years. But what makes the last twelve months so unprecedented is all of these things happened at once. And what happened when we were thrown into this new uncharted territory? We panicked. Not just as a nation but the world as a whole panicked and shut down. While this may have surprised us, it didn't surprise God. He knew it was coming. He knew we would face the challenges we face today. Jeremiah 1:5 says, "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations". As long as we continue to pray and stand on His principles, found in His word, God will give us the same wisdom He gave his prophets. We're also reminded in Esther 4:14 that we were born for such a time as this. God has given us everything we need to thrive and be His voice of hope.
